life may throw some jagged shards

of glass that cut us deep
and seeping into these cruel wounds
a poison may just creep
.
we fight back with a fury
with an fire to stay alive
and rising is the power
that compels us to survive
.
but from a bad experience
there is a lesson taught
and every time we're made to fall
a drop of wisdom's caught
.
what maims us also molds us
we recover from the rift
although the cost is high sometimes
it's such a priceless gift
.
it's said what doesn't kill us
makes us stronger by and by
much clearer is the truth
when we're confronted with a lie
.
when dark looms to surround us
often light comes shining though
the brilliance, overwhelming
makes it clear what we must do
.
we all need education
and although it seems quite sad
we learn much more from sorrow
than the times when we are glad
.
what maims us also molds us
and it carries us on high
the cost we pay is dear
but this is how we learn to fly
